The Melbourne School of Engineering at the University of Melbourne hopes to attract an excellent candidate in the general area of mechatronics, with a favourable inclusion of robotics within the scope, for a junior (Level B Lecturer) appointment. This is equivalent to an Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) position in the US and / or Europe.
For those who do not know of the University or of the city Melbourne, we plug in here a quick set of stats from a few popular ranking systems: the University of Melbourne is top-ranked in Australia (33rd in the world according to the Times Higher Education ranking) and is located in "the most liveable city in the world" (a title that the city has held and defended successfully on multiple occasions in recent years).
Stats aside, it is simply a nice place to work and live.
The successful candidate will be located within the Department of Mechanical Engineering and is expected to carry out the full spectrum of academic duties and contribute to the teaching and curriculum development to subjects taught within the Department. The School of Engineering has a well-established track record in many relevant and supportive areas to the intended appointment and provides a very conducive environment to the development of a competitive academic career. It is expected that the successful candidate bring a richness of expertise to the School as well as help strengthen existing critical mass in the area, such as (and not limited to): clinical, biomedical and biomechanics applications (there is an established collaboration with the strong Faculty of Medicine within the University), energy systems application, industrial automation, fluid mechanics (turbulence and drag reduction) applications.
